It's either Dave Winfield or Steve Whitaker. I'm going with Whitaker.
Say let me ask you something...how is it that you might have confused Steve Whitaker (my guess,too) with Dave Winfield...Winfield is a whole lot taller...check the back of their baseball cards...for goodness sakes...
"...let it be known that as of this date in Major League Baseball history the one, truly honest single season home run record...61 in '61..."
Rusty Torres....wasnt he involved in a Clev trade....maybe the Nettles one?
Yes, it was young Yankees OF Rusty Torres, INF Jerry Kenney, OF Charlie Spikes and Catcher Johnny Ellis were traded to the Cleveland Indians by the New York Yankees for Graig Nettles. Only Johnny Ellis had a decent MLB career until he was forced to retire with a broken leg injury.
